You’re invited to a NYE Party!!!!

I decided this year that I would host a virtual New Year’s Eve party and invite all of our wonderful readers here at Gay Book Reviews to attend. Since I didn’t win the big lottery on Christmas Eve, I can’t afford to fly you all to Las Vegas, Hawaii, Paris or somewhere equally exotic, but I can host a virtual party you can attend from the comfort of your computer…

“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” ~ Immanuel Kant

“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” ~ Immanuel Kant

Guess what I’m talking about today. 🙂 Brilliant guess. Animals, more specifically, pets as found in m/m books. (Thanks to the lovely Kris for letting me expand on her theme.) Some people love books that have animals in them (or on them), others fear that it will end badly for the pet and dislike reading about animals who are hurt or die. I don’t either. No Marley and Me for…

Wowie Yaoi

Wowie Yaoi

Okay, it’s not quite pronounced the same. It’s pronounced ya-oh-ee. But if you say it fast it’s close. What is it you ask? Yaoi is a Japanese graphic form of m/m romance, often referred to as Boy Love or BL. Think comic books with more nekkidness. 🙂

Condoms, Condoms, who has the condoms

Another post about condoms. Sheesh, we have a one track mind here. But I had my idea before Leslie posted, I’m just slow. No penises involved in my post. No penises in condoms you say shocked? What’s the point then? It was something Wave said in one of her “coming up this week” posts. She said “Always use a condom, even if you’re not having sex.” and I thought “Hmmm. Interesting…

Turtle Neck or Crew Neck? What’s your pleasure?

No, I’m not discussing sweaters. I’m discussing *whispers* foreskins. The big decision for some pregnant moms-to-be is “If my baby is a boy, do I have him circumcised or leave him au naturel?” I say some because for other mother’s this isn’t even a consideration, it’s either a yes, often for religious reasons, or no for personal or cultural reasons. How does this relate to m/m romance you are asking and what…

The winner of the gold medal is ….

In honour of the end of the Olympics held here in Canada, I thought I’d give out medals this round to our illustrious winners. Once again we had dynamic round of voting in the Ugly Covers Competition IV. The voting was fairly consistent with three books taking the majority of the votes with only one other with a significant number of votes.

‘Tis the Season of Giving

Advisory: Except for the recipes, many of the links in this article are NSFW so be cautious when clicking. It’s that time of year. The shopping panic begins. What do you get everyone? Where do you find the perfect gift for the perfect price? It never ends. The stress can lead to the consumption of copious quantities of spiked eggnog and shortbread cookies as the mental breakdown inches ever closer. But you can…

? ? Let’s Do the Time Warp ? ?

Last night I did something I haven’t done in …. 20+ years. I’ll refrain from mentioning the actual number of years. I went to the midnight Halloween showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show.  I took my 14 year old daughter and three of her friends and off we went. I wish I had pictures but it was too dark so you’ll have to rely on my descriptive skills.
